Match Analysis

Dabang Delhi K.C. is enjoying playing in front of its home crowd. Three wins from its four matches at home so far have added some much needed momentum to a campaign which looked like it was running out of steam. Now, though, Dabang Delhi K.C. will be very confident of upsetting the Bengaluru Bulls.

Dabang Delhi K.C. has based its success on the performance of a promising raiding trio. The performances of Meraj Sheykh, Chandran Ranjit, and Naveen Kumar would have gladdened the heart of the Dabang Delhi K.C. faithful in the last few days.

Naveen Kumar, the 18-year-old rookie, has been the leader of this raiding attack. In the last few matches, though, all three raiders have shared points much more closely. This is an excellent sign for Dabang Delhi K.C. because it means the side has a credible threat at all times on the mat.

It also allows the raiders to go hard at certain points and then allow the other ones to take over for some time. The penchant for getting off to fast starts and building up a lead early will be tested against a side like the Bengaluru Bulls which has the arsenal to pay Delhi back in the same coin.

The defensive prowess of Joginder Narwal and Ravinder Pahal is going to be tested to the core against an exceptional offensive unit.

The Bengaluru Bulls have been blindsided by the Bengal Warriors the last two times they played against them but have managed to register some solid victories as well. There are some questions being asked about the defense of the Bengaluru Bulls but that does not mean the Bulls are a bad side by any stretch of the imagination.

The Bengaluru Bulls have their own raiding trio to counter Delhi. Rohit Kumar, Pawan Kumar Sehrawat, and Kashiling Adake are high-quality raiders that could rip apart the Dabang Delhi K.C. defense. The only thing they would be worried about would be mistakes from their own defensive unit, something that can change the balance of the game in a crucial situation.

Key stat

The head to head between Dabang Delhi K.C. and the Bengaluru Bulls is locked at 5-5 each. The current form of both sides is quite good as well.

Verdict

Dabang Delhi K.C has enjoyed playing at home but the physical toll of playing back to back matches will start to come through. The Bengaluru Bulls are a very hard side to defend against. Both teams are somewhat similar in nature, although we think the raiding trio of the Bengaluru Bulls is higher quality.

The side which gets off to a fast start and gets an early lead could dominate proceedings. We think that side will be the Bengaluru Bulls.

Back the Bengaluru Bulls to win.
